Speaker Coaching Wait List

Get on the mailing list for future classes!

Have you always wanted to be a speaker?

Are you already speaking and want to move to the next level?

Are you ready to make this the year you take some intentional steps to make that happen?


I’ve been writing and speaking for over twenty years and I love teaching others how to hone their communication skills and make an income doing what they love!  I’m also the Founder of Hearts at Home, an organization that produced professional conferences for moms for 24 years. I’ve been on both sides of the speaking world so I understand speaking from both the speaker and the meeting planner’s perspectives!

I Believe In YOU!

I believe in YOU and want to help you learn how to leverage your experience, knowledge, and wisdom to inspire others.  There are lessons I’ve learned the hard way that I’d like to pass along to you. There are steps I have found that will help you create and deliver a compelling message. There are strategies I’ve discovered that help build relationship with meeting planners and negotiating finances. There are skills I’ve honed that help you build a platform to reach more people. I want to come alongside you to help you make this the year you got serious about telling your story!

Turn Your Mess Into Your Message

jill-speakingI’m a firm believer in authenticity. In our hyper-connected world, it’s entirely too easy for us to compare our insides to someone else’s outsides. I believe speakers need to be honest about the good AND the hard parts of life. No one wants to listen to a know-it-all, but everyone loves to hear from someone who knows what it feels like to be in the trenches. I want to help you share your stories, your wisdom, and your experience in a way that lets others know they’re not alone and inspires them to take the next right step in their own life.

I also want to help YOU take the next right step in your own life as a storyteller. I want to help you learn how to tell your stories well, in a way that both entertains and inspires. I want to help you create and deliver messages that make a difference in someone’s life.

This is why I’m so excited about the Inspire Speaker Course!

  • Do you have a desire to share your story to help and inspire others?
  • Do you like to teach principles you’ve learned the hard way so others can benefit from your hard-earned wisdom?
  • Do you enjoy helping people move from where they are to where they want to be?
  • Do you long for people to know they’re not alone?
  • Do you want to inspire, entertain, or teach others?
  • Do you struggle knowing how to get started speaking?
  • Are you already speaking and want to move to the next level?
  • Are looking for a mentor to guide you down the speaking road?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, this online course is just for you!

We’re Better Together!

We’re not meant to do life alone. We’re also not meant to learn alone. I’ve learned from some wonderful speakers throughout the years. I’ve also made plenty of mistakes (remind me to tell you about the “UM” sign my friend used to sit on the front row with!)

I’ve learned to be a confident, public speaker because I’ve tapped into the wisdom of others. I’ve moved from where I was to where I wanted to be because of the community I immersed myself in.

I want to be part of YOUR community! I also want you to benefit from an exciting community of communicators. After all, we’re better together!

I Want to Cheer You On!

There’s something very powerful about knowing someone is in your corner! There’s also something to be said about learning from someone who has years of experience. The world needs your story but you need to know where to start, how to take next steps, and how to craft and deliver a compelling message. I want to teach you how to do that!

This online course is for you if you are:

  • A speaker wanna-be who has the desire, but needs to know how to…
    • get started.
    • create a strong message.
    • deliver it well.
    • make some money doing what you love.
  • Already speaking but you need to…
    • strengthen your communication skills.
    • learn how to strategically put together a strong message.
    • take the business side of speaking to the next level.

How It Works

This is a unique opportunity to connect with me and with others who are navigating the speaking world.  The program is based online where the teaching will happen in videos.  A private Facebook group is where questions are answered and discussion abounds. It’s also where you can share your own short speaking videos and receive valuable feedback to sharpen your skills!

In this unique program, you’ll:

  • Learn how to put together strong messages that make a difference in people’s lives.
  • Strengthen your delivery skills so people are drawn into your message and don’t want you to stop speaking.
  • Learn about great places to “practice” your speaking and get the feedback necessary to keep improving.
  • Connect with me weekly in the Facebook group and have the opportunity to ask questions!
  • Network with other communicators so you can benefit from the combined wisdom of community!
  • Download practical resources that will get you started with the business side of speaking.

When you register, you will get instructions about accessing the private Facebook Group. (Don’t worry if you’re not too tech-savvy…we’ll help you out!) !
